Follow along as I build the hopped-up version of Tamiya's latest RWD M-chassis car, the M06 Pro kit.

In the first video I build the transmission and most of the rear clip of the car and assemble the main pieces of the tub.


(watch this on YouTube for more options)




UPDATE:

The full homage page is up with a photo gallery & video -- Tamiya M-06 Pro Chassis kit

Jang, this is the first build video that I have watched of yours and I was surprised that you used a drill for the screws.

Is this something that you would recommend to someone that has never built a kit before, or do you do it because you know what you are doing??

I am thinking about getting a kit and I have a nice drill/screw gun that I would like to use...but I worry that I may end up stripping some of the plastic by accident.

Thanks!
Jeff

Electric "screwdrivers" have a torque setting, I would start with the lowest setting and increase the setting as needed.

That's a good point.

My drill does have a torque setting. I've just always had it set at the Tim The Tool Man Taylor "MORE POWER" setting!!!

I don't recommend using an actual drill unless you have experience with finessing it and are very good at judging the needed speed based on materials and thread type and depth. Even with the slowest speed setting and the clutch as loose as it gets, I could easily strip a lot of screws if I wasn't careful.

Yay!

Interesting that they chose to use externally mounted gears like the M-01/02.

Jang's description of AW was spot-on...it's kinda like fossilized honey. Doesn't Aw on the dogbones attract grit?

Yes it would, but not like off-road vehicles. I don't bother with mine. I just want to see the video, the best part for me

AW grease does attract a LOT of grit on my off-road buggy. Oh well, it gets cleaned pretty often anyway.

Nice build so far! I really enjoy Tamiya builds. Looking forward to finding out what body you're going to use.
